02 Jun Awards and conferences
The past weeks have been amazing! The 20th to 22nd of May we attended Nordic Game in Malmö which also included Nordic Game Awards. We were honoured by receiving the award for Best Artistic Achievement. This is such a great accomplishment for us!
Nordic Game is an important conference for the Nordic countries so that we can connect, meet new and old acquaintances, and get business opportunities. There are talks, a small expo area, an award show and a lot of social gatherings. Krillbite Studio had a small showcase at Unity’s booth where we showed Oculus Rift version of Among the Sleep.
We also announced that Among the Sleep is coming to Xbox One this year! PlayStation 4 is still on, and we’re also working on getting the game on Morpheus. We’re super happy about this and we’re so pleased with all the great feedback we have gotten!
It’s a year since we released Among the Sleep and honestly we cannot believe it’s been that long. Some Kickstarter backers are still waiting patiently for their rewards and we’re sooo looking forward to sending it out for you now before summer. Thank you again for your patience!
We have also been attending MomoCon and Creative Coast with an indirect and direct representative from Krillbite Studio. At MomoCon in Atlanta we were so lucky to have our good friends Sarepta Studio represent us at our booth, while we sent our sound guy Martin to Creative Coast Festival in Sweden.
And we even won a price at MomoCon! MomoCon is a huge con in the US that focuses on anime, animation, comics, video games, and tabletop games. There where 20 games nominated for The Indie Game Awards and we where lucky enough to be the ones that received Best Game Award!
Creative Coast is a super chill, awesome festival that focus on games, music, movies, sound and digital/post-digital art.
And speaking of music, have you seen that we have released the soundtrack for Among the Sleep? You can find it at Bandcamp!
Other conferences in 2015
We won’t be at E3 ourselves but you can find info about Among the Sleep in Microsoft’s catalogue! So excited to see that! We are going to be at Develop Conference in Brighton 15th and 16th of July, hope to see you there!
That’s it for now and our Kickstarter backers will receive an update on the physical rewards later this week!
